A young girl was rescued while swimming on Lake Conroe on Memorial Day after her foot was impaled and she became stuck in the water at a bulkhead.

The girl was in the water in the swimming area when her foot became impaled on two nails, Lt. Timothy Cade said in a video from the scene provided by the Montgomery County Police Reporter. Cade is with the Montgomery County Pct. 1 Constable's Marine Division.
